The End of Days

I may be losing perspective.

My phone has the internet and I was on it earlier killing time, which is exactly why having the internet on your phone is worth every penny it costs.

And on the homepage, in what they are calling "Odd News," was a story about the price of Chicken Wings going up.

I don't think the people at my phone internet news company understand.

This is not odd news.

This is a major crisis.

If we can't get wings, what the hell are we supposed to eat?

In other sort of hard to believe chicken wing news, to be sure that this really happened, I Googled "yahoo odd news chicken wings," and the first thing up returned "Bandits rob delivery man of chicken wings in Georgia." The same return involved the news "Panda found eating like a pig."

  1. It's the law of supply and demand, professor! My uncle told me once that chicken wings used to be super cheap and he'd buy 'em and cook 'em all the time when he was young. They were considered scrap meat, akin to pigs feet and gizzards and such. Then those pesky upstate New Yorkers started promoting their dish in the 1980's and ever since then the cost is on a continual ascent.
